Amriki biraders, Has Biden got any Huma darling like Paki as his staffer ?
I don't recall Biden making any anti-India comment in recent days.

Pocahontas managed to come through with a clear-as-mud message apparently: dropped well below Bloomberg. Orangeutan didn't waste the chance to poke fun. :rotfl:


Bernie went after Latinos, Jihadis, Berkeley radicals (aka students). Blacks rose to get back the party to them instead Latinos overrunning them. Whites followed the suite. All are done and dusted with Biden as clear winner to take on Trump. More than Pocahontas big loser is Bloomberg who not only lost but his reputation is also damaged. Good lesson for rich for "election" buying - money can't buy votes always. Trump despite being rich has most number of small donors and still raised like 150 mil from them.

In SFO another vote-bank that matters is Asians who are not Bernie fans anyway. All "feeling of Bern" will wither away soon and all Bloomberg voting moves to Biden.

Coming Indian-American issues, Ro Khanna got new Republican opponent Ritesh Tandon who is now qualified to run in November. This is significant because only top 2 get to go for November and in the past top 2 spots were hogged by democrats and Republican couldn't run in main elections. Tandon got 25% i.e. 10% more than Republican base in that district on his side in the primary. He has more work cut out to get more middle class Asians and Indian-Americans to put dent into Khanna.

Good deal. Note that TulsiG's points about war still cause khulji to gaddhas. ArrTeedotcom showed "war vets" confronting Buy-Den telling him he has "the blood of vets on his hands" etc. With Orangeutan having pulled out of Afg, and so far restrained the Deep State from bombing Eyeran, (v won't talk about what ails Quom) the elepants have a new stick. Should use liberally to whack RoKh's ass.

On the contrary according to Bernie Sanders minions Biden has a Hindu staffer and they want to oust him from the campaign.
There is a change.org petition going around seeking to beseech Biden to keep him.

I think no one should sing the petition as it will show the Hinduphobic tack of Democrats since Hillary Clinton.

Not to my knowledge.

However, the Biden campaign has a Hindu, Amit Jani, as National Director for Asian-American and Pacific Islander outreach.

https://www.linkedin.com/in/amitjani

The Pakis (including Indian-origin Pakis) in US want Amit Jani dismissed as he is believed to be a supporter of Narendra Modi. There is a change.org petition circulating for this. Nonetheless, Amit Jani has been in his position for 7 months now (since Sept 2019).

From any perspective, it is fundamentally unwise to put all our eggs in the Republican basket. Better to have our people in both camps wherever possible.

If there is a pro-Modi Hindu-American as a senior staffer of the Biden campaign, why not support him?

Here is the petition. "We stand with Amit Jani"

It would be nice if we at BRF could analyze Biden/Sanders from the India POV and see who we recommend assuming POTUS would be a Dem.

Have they made any statements about yeevil yindoo nashunalist Modi?

Highly doubt it, one is showing signs of dementia and other just had a heart attack. My early bet is on pokahauntus for Biden (to placate "progressives") and Stacy Abhrams (to seal the black vote)..

To the story above about the uber driver. In the land of the free and the home of the brave, lawyers go soliciting clients as follows. "Have you been a victim of workplace injury, where your employer didn't pay sufficient compensation?" "Have you been a victim of asbestos-induced cancer?" "If so, we will fight your case, and remember, there is never a fee unless we get money for YOU!"

Often, they try to collect as many clients as possible, and do a group-case, which has a much better chance of success (I think). What is needed is for some Hindu-friendly lawyer(s) to solicit clients who have been victims of Hinduphobia owing to the lies spewed by CNN, BBC, et al., and to do a group case suing these worthies. Don't waste time presenting facts to your abusers. Save them for the court, when you can present them directly against the media groups. You will get a (somewhat) fairer hearing that way, and a much better chance of publicity, with a good chance of taking these media worthies down a couple of notches.

EDIT: Oh, and I don't understand this defensive mindset. Arguing and presenting facts is an option in a friendly dinner discussion. Not when faced with that kind of abuser. What is needed in the latter situation, is to pull out your phone and start recording the evidence for later use. If the guy kicks you out of the uber car, all the better, it's his funeral.

Trump explains Warren's failure

Trump rejected a suggestion that sexism grounded Elizabeth Warren's campaign: "I think lack of talent was her problem.

The correct answer, imho, is that the conflict is 900 years old.

And, that no one, including the UN or the US Congress, can turn a switch on/off to change the situation.


I have used it with good results.


In fact a secondary argument in my back pocket is that very likely the guys who fought in ND had relatives that fought similar fights going back centuries.

They want to manage the Biden condition with MSM cover up. If there are any more debates face to face with Sanders Biden will be exposed hopelessly. Biden is suitable for many as he will do what he was told as he can not understand anything very soon ( of course he can understand many things even now).

For Donkeys retaining control of the party is critical than winning 2020. I am think they have realized they have no one who can taken on and beat DT earlier itself. Not with good job numbers etc. So they stopped Sanders and Tulsi.

I was not surprised to see not even a single Tv presenter/guest mentioned her name and the fact that she is still in the race now. They simply ignored her.

5 takeaways as Biden takes command of Democratic race on Super Tuesday II
Biden also notched massive wins in Idaho, Mississippi and Missouri. Sanders won in North Dakota. Washington hadn't been called yet, but as of Wednesday morning, Biden was in a tight race there with Sanders, another state Sanders needed to win.

Tuesday marked a clear turning point in the Democratic race. Biden is building a powerful coalition of African Americans, suburbanites and rural white voters who previously backed Sanders, while Sanders is failing to produce the electorate-changing turnout of young voters that he's promised. Democratic figures, from one-time 2020 candidate Andrew Yang to the party's biggest super PAC, Priorities USA, lined up behind Biden after his Michigan win.
"I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination," Clyburn said on NPR. "And quite frankly, if the night ends the way it has begun, I think it is time for us to shut this primary down. It is time for us to cancel the rest of these debates."

Clyburn put in the most direct terms a growing sentiment inside much of the Democratic Party: Sanders' path to the nomination was closed Tuesday night, and it's time for him to leave the race.

"I hereby am endorsing Joe Biden," former 2020 candidate Andrew Yang said on CNN Tuesday night. "Bernie was an inspiration for me, inspired my run. But the math says Joe is our prohibitive nominee. We need to bring the party together."

And the broader Democratic apparatus began coalescing around Biden, too -- led by Priorities USA, the party's largest super PAC.
"The math is now clear. Joe Biden is going to be the Democratic nominee for President and @prioritiesUSA is going to do everything we can to help him defeat Donald Trump in November," Guy Cecil, the group's head, tweet after Michigan was called. "I hope others will join us in the fight."

How a Pakistani/Islamic Lobby took over Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign sabotaging his aspirations


welll researched ...

After the launch of Bernie's presidential campaign, there was a weird trend of campaign insiders courting fringe elements like Sameera Khan, a well known Pakistani propagandist who idolizes Stalin, Pakistan and China's fascist policies. Ironically she is popular among Bernie supporters even though she is anti-Bernie when it comes to Pakistan-China nexus.
Mehdi Hasan who was against Bernie till 2019, suddenly becomes Bernie Sanders fan. He is a great individual with some amazing views.
